Dear God, really? They are already selling tickets for a movie that doesn't come out for more than a month? Ridiculous.

Never too soon for the movie of the year!!!!

I'm really looking forward to getting started on a book called Saturday by Ian McEwan. It's something of a "literary" thriller from what I gather, and he is a writer of tremendous talent. This weekend I will devote a number of hours to just pleasure reading.

MCEwan is a great writer of serious fiction. Atonement is an outstanding novel.

Haven't read that one and unfortunately I saw the movie which takes away any interest. Mistake on my part, I am sure the novel is better.

Way to go Nik Wallenda!!! Pretty thrilling, even with the safety harness!!

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 16, 2012 12:21:47 PM PDT
Great stunt of course, but I was disappointed with the harness. And quite clearly, he was as well. ABC made him wear it, for understandable legal reasons.

What you think they were worried about having a guy take the big plunge on live TV in prime time lol?!?!??

Exactly. Standards

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 17, 2012 6:14:43 AM PDT
Standards and practices was my intended post. Plus liability inaurance, ans the chance of losing sponsors if the stunt went wrong. Smart move by ABC.

Well so far I haven't been disappointed in Saturday. Gripping, and the prose is just pitch perfect, line by line.

In a cinematic thriller vein, "Kiss Me Deadly" just popped up on my dvr list from months ago on TCM. What a treat!

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 17, 2012 3:10:02 PM PDT
Classic noir.

Well yes and no. It's a very odd bird of a movie, much more bizarre than any of Bogart's outings. I live it though.

Also, Hammer is an out-and-out thug as played by Ralph Meeker. Apparently Spillane didn't like that at all.

Authors being less than pleased with the cinematic adaptations of their work is hardly a rare occurrance. Actually it's something of a longheld Hollywood tradition.

Granted, the majority of movies based on novels suck- at least comparatively.

Way off this movie thread, but...
I'm reading Rogue Island by Bruce DeSilva, which won an Edgar for best 1st novel. Midway through and enjoying it. Protagonist is an "old school" newspaper reporter caught up in a series of arson fires in the Mount Hope neighborhood of Providence.

Frank Haines says:
That's an intriguing title and description, Paul. Sounds like the kind of book with a good sense of place, and the Edgar award certainly merits respect.

I've read it. It's good, and the follow-up Cliff Walk: A Liam Mulligan Novel is on my list.

Frank Haines says:
Right on. Already a series in the making.

Yell well, we'll have to see if a continuation is really warranted, but I have a good feeling about it.

Saturday was excellent. A very haunting look at some of the scarier aspects of modern city life, with London as the locale. It really got under my skin, I'm looking forward to a lighter read now.
